I'd say it's because he knows he'd never win re-election.

I think Grassley was speculating, or maybe joking. I don't think Baucus has actually said that he's fed up or worried about a train wreck w/r/t ObamaCare. (He should, but I don't think Baucus is that smart.)

Judy Matott asked Baucus if he would work to improve Libby's image, and then asked him and Sebelius, "if either of you read the health care bill before it was passed and if not, that is the most despicable, irresponsible thing."

Baucus replied that if Libby residents assembled an economic development plan, he would do what he could to help, and he took credit for "essentially" writing the health care bill that passed the Senate.

"I don't think you want me to waste my time to read every page of the health care bill. You know why? It's statutory language," Baucus said. "We hire experts."

A comment from Baucus spokeswoman Erin Shields:

Senator Baucus wrote the bill that passed the Finance Committee and then worked with his colleagues to write the health care bill that is law today. He has spent years crafting this policy and hundreds of hours reading and perfecting it. There is simply no question that he understands the provisions in the health care law and knows it is a historic improvement that will make our health care system more affordable and accessible for families in Montana and across America.
